    basic FUNCTION
  • mediating selective neuronal growth and axon targeting
  • neuronal surface glycoprotein found in the cortical and subcortical regions of the limbic system
  • LSAMP and NTM promote adhesion and neurite outgrowth via a homophilic mechanism, suggesting that these proteins promote the formation of specific neuronal circuits by homophilic interactions
  • function as a tumor suppressor gene in clear cell renal cell carcinoma
  • neuronal adhesive molecule, preferentially expressed in developing limbic system neuronal dendrites and somata (Must 2008)
  • might play a role in pathoaetiology of suicidal behaviour (Must 2008)
  • candidate tumor suppressor gene in osteosarcomas (Kresse 2009)
  • is a neural cell adhesion molecule involved in neurite formation and outgrowth
  • is involved in emotional and social operating systems by complex regulation of two alternative promoters
  • role for ADAM10-dependent shedding of cell surface LSAMP in promoting outgrowth from dorsal root ganglion cells (DRGs) neurons

    protein
  • interplay between LSAMP and NTM in regulating tissue homeostasis: the impact of NTM on cellular proliferation was dependent on LSAMP, and LSAMP appeared to be a positive regulator of apoptosis in the presence of NTM
